Eleanor asked “My dad has asked me again this year to get my mum’s Christmas presents from him and I am sure she doesn’t want another winter coat!  Any ideas? ” “Hi Eleanor, how lovely to have the job of spoiling such a very special person! WeIl, if she never gets around to treating herself, why not take advantage of our Early Bird Gift Voucher Offer which means we give you a £15 voucher free when you spend £100 on vouchers.  And if you think she would like something to open, we have a gorgeous array of gift sets from Guinot, Mii Cosmetics and Jessica Nail Polishes to name a few.  We will even gift wrap a gift for you with the final flourish of a glitzy bow to show your mum just how much she is loved.  Why not pop in and have a look?”

As it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would publish the Against Breast Cancer 5 Point Plan so you know what to look out for when you check your breasts each month:

  1.  A change in the outline, shape or size of the breast
  2.  A new isolated lump
  3.  Any difference between the ‘lumpiness’ in the two breasts found early in the menstrual cycle and still there at the end of the cycle
  4.  Skin dimpling that changes the appearance of the surface of the breast
  5. In-drawing of the nipple, or alteration in its direction

Other things to look out for may include:
Discharge from the nipple for no apparent reason
Bleeding from the nipple
Distortion of the area around the nipple (areola)
An ‘orange-skin’ appearance of the breast skin (not the colour, but the little dimples)
Alteration in the position or ‘hang’ of the breast compared to the other breast
Rubbery, firm, easily felt lumps or glands (lymph nodes) in the armpit
Go to your GP if you notice anything unusual or are worried

Mandy asked “I am a real gym bunny and have never bothered with skin care after my work-out but I am noticing I am getting more spots than I have ever had before.  What can you recommend for an easy solution?”  Susan says “Ok, I admit it, I am no gym bunny but I agree that skin care has to be quick and effective whatever you’re doing.  Guinot’s Eau Demaquillante Micellaire Instant Cleansing Water gently but instantly removes make-up and cleanses the face, removes eye make-up, and tones the skin. The formula is free of soap, alcohol, parabens and artificial colouring agents. And no rinsing is necessary. We also have a great range of travel kits from that make post gym skin care a breeze.  Little bottles, quick workers and prices start from just £25 so I hope you’ll pop in to the salon again soon and grab one to suit your skin type”

Karina asked “I am off to Greece this summer but I hate flying and get really worked up.  Any ideas how I can keep calm before I go?”  Susan says “. I do sympathise as I know so many people who feel the same.  I am a great believer in planning and being super organised before you go.  Double check you have everything you need to look like a Greek Goddess on the beach, get your body hair-free and your feet flip flop ready with a pedicure, and maybe an indulgent massage will help the day before you fly? Take a good book, download a new one on Kindle, or plug in to some soothing music on your headphones to zone out in-flight.  I like to treat the flight as the beginning of the adventure so I hope this helps, Karina.  Have a wonderful time”  If you have a beauty question, just ‘Ask Susan’ via This email address is being protected from spambots.

Jenny asked “How can I make my spray tan last as long as possible?” Susan says “Preparation prior to your spray tan is really important. It’s a good idea to exfoliate thoroughly to get rid of any dry skin as this can darken more than you would like once tanned. Always remember to wear loose, dark clothes straight after your spray tan as tightly fitted clothes can rub the tan away. I highly recommend the brand new ‘Get Your Glow On’ homecare kit from tanning experts Kissed by Mii. The kit includes an exfoliator, tanning lotion to top up at home, and a beautiful moisturiser to ensure your glow lasts and lasts, and at just £19.99, I think it’s well worth the money. I hope that helps, Jenny” If you have a beauty question, just ‘Ask Susan’ via This email address is being protected from spambots.

Marion asks:  “I’ve always shaved, but lately I’ve been getting ingrown hairs and they are really uncomfortable. Do you have any advice?”
Susan: “Try using a body scrub or an exfoliating mitt to lift the ingrown hairs. If this doesn’t work, maybe try waxing as the hair removal lasts longer. I hope this helps!” Have a wonderful day.

Mrs P asks “I had a really busy Christmas and I am feeling fed up after all the celebrations.  What do you recommend as a pick-me-up?”  Susan says “After such a busy time, our clients often comment how flat they are feeling and many of them pop in for some much needed pampering.  High on my list of favourites is a hot stone massage that soothes away tension and is just heavenly in these colder months.  I also love a facial to combat the elements as I firmly believe that a brisk walk wrapped up warmly, can also list the spirits and prepare me for the weeks ahead.  I hope this helps!” If you have a beauty question, just ‘Ask Susan’
